... ive realised 212's are really what i love best.

+1^^

A 212 really does seem to nail it!

If you can handle the weight, this (I absolutely love the sound that I get out of mine):

I would love one of those, but it looks heavy and i live on the 3rd floor without a lift 😞

Yup I know exactly what you mean. Mine is part of my Mesa M6 combo and whilst it is my favourite rig in terms of glorious sound, at 80lbs it's definitely staying put in my bass-ment!

i am seriously thinking of getting rid of my Vanderkley 1x15 though. As much as i love it i still miss the sound of a 212 cab.

I'd have to agree with you there. For me in terms of portable 'one cab' solutions, my order of preference would be for sound quality and punch alone:

1) 212

2) 210

3) 112

4) 115

I've settled on a VK210LNT as my 'compromise' on sound quality, punch, power, price and weight. Very happy with it so far...

Ive only ever had one cab that had 10's in it, the BF Retro 210. I have played though a few others though and have always liked what i hear/feel.

I noticed the other night how uncompressed my tone was. Same amp settings etc, but the upper strings were much more prominent than when i use my 1x15.

I think id really get on with the VK210LNT though, although id love to try one of the Vanderkley 212's (my guitarist has one but he wont bring it along for me to try lol).

If my gigging future looked more promising id sort out a new cab, but as its all up in the air at the moment i dont have much enthusiasm for changing cabs.

I have a Barefaced Super Twin and it doesn't get out of 1st gear for an average pub / club gig.  These days, a 2 X 12 will cover most scenarios.  If you need to go louder, you'd probably be damaging your hearing.

      TC RS212 Cab. 400 Watt 2 x 12. Super powerful. Has been gigged so a few scrapes and dings but working perfectly. Sounds awesome. Comes with TCRS212 soft cover.(£30 new).

      Now that I have a RS112 just purchased from Jumanji on here, my hardly used (probably gigged no more than 3 or 4 times) RS212 is for sale.
      Bought new from Bass Direct along with an RH750 and RS210, I have favoured the RS210 for smaller gigs, and the RS212 only came out 3 or 4 times.
      I'm downsizing again, so will be using combinations of the RS210 and/or the RS112 in future.
      I still have the original box and all packaging, and a TC padded cover to include with the RS212.
      This is an 8 Ohm cabinet, but up to three mix and match RS cabinets can be used with a TC head.
      It's the newer, improved finish with speakon connectors only.
      More information here :-

      Cash on collection preferred (Western suburbs of Norwich) or I could courier this one as it's relatively light and I have all packaging - 48-hour insured courier would be in the region of £25 extra.
      The lowest in stock online price I can find for this new is £499 plus £49 for the cover so there's a saving of £148 [now £198 with price reduction] to be had here, for an as-new cab..... 😉
      Please contact me by direct message on Basschat in the first instance.

      These are pretty legendary for their projection and for packing a lot of power into a small size. This is partly due to one front-facing and one side-firing 12” speaker, allowing for a more compact 2x12” than you would normally expect. Also equipped with a titanium dome tweeter (which you can dial in on the back).
      Has a sturdy “truck bed liner” paint finish which is easily and cheaply refreshed if you so wish. At present I’d say the cab is in a good gigged condition. It could be restored to immaculate fairly easily with a lick of paint and new corner protectors.
      Speakon and dual jack inputs on the back alongside the tweeter attenuator.
      Collection preferred from London SE3.
      I have some other stuff for sale here, would certainly be tempted by upward trades for more than one item.
